    Took my colleague and his wife to the range today who were looking to get their first gun and CHL. I bought several guns to give them a variety to test as well as see differences in recoil, trigger pull, safeties and such. Out of this list the gun the liked the best? The Grand Power p1. It is also easily my favorite. Their spontaneous feedback was very controllable, light recoil and nice trigger and they asked where to buy one. It was interesting to see them noticed the difference right away.

    (the Kriss, Rhino and PMR30 were just for fun)

    Springfield 4.5 XD 45
    Springfield XD9 compact
    Springfield XDS
    Beretta 92s
    PMR30
    1911

    Bonus, my 80% 1911 has still not blown off my fingers!

    That is weird. Looks silly, maybe even ridiculous.
